My Writing Community

I can’t imagine writing in a vacuum. I love my writing groups, Big Rig and Bad Ass (no, I will not explain the name!) and all those that came before.

Here are some writers of my community:

Laura McHale Holland

{I have a chapter in this book.}

Sky Blaine

Katy Pye

Molly Dwyer

Victoria Mulato

I had the deeply moving privilege of helping to edit this book, Sister Moon of the PHilippines. It is a brave account, at times raw, at other times with a sweet delicacy toward nature and human emotion. Above all, it tells a significant tale.


Part coming-of-age novel, part family saga, “Outlaw Ford” tells the tale of Les Ford from his birth — from California to Louisiana and back to the great plains. Author Malcolm Macdonald lives alongside the Albion River where his family has ranched and farmed since the 1800s. Order from Gallery Books in Mendocino, CA.
